    Good... With Flaws

    It was EPIC! Finally, something with a guy who looks like Spidey to me! Maguire was an ugly, dorky cry-baby. They were focusing more on the wimpy high-school Peter in the original series, and his look didn't match the rest of the series. However, I think Andrew Garfield could be teenage Peter AND adult Peter!

    • GEORGE STACY - I like Denis Leary as George, but George is supposed to have GREY hair.

      The Amazing Spider-Man. Hearing it and just looking at a few things in it, it looks good. Nice costume, some cool special effects, etc. Then all the acclaim it's gotten It looks pretty good. Then, you actually sit down and watch it. I'm going to start with a little story going into it.Before I saw itI saw Spider-Man 3 in 2008, a little under a year I got into comics. I loved it. It was just so awesome. I was waiting years for Spider-Man 4. Then, it was canceled. I was very angry, but I just look...
